If the disputes cannot be resolved by the senior management, either party may make a written demand for formal dispute resolution and specify therein the scope of the dispute. 13.2 If the disagreements cannot be resolved by the senior management after thirty (30) days from the date any party made a written demand for resolution, a binding arbitration shall be held. Subject to the provisions of this Section, the rules of the arbitration shall be agreed upon by the parties prior to the arbitration and based upon the nature of the disagreement. To the extent that the Parties cannot agree on the rules of the arbitration, then the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") in effect on the Effective Date of this Agreement, or, when either of the parties is not a U.S. entity, then the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the International Chamber of Commerce ("ICC") in effect on the Effective Date of this Agreement, and except as the applicable rules are modified by this Agreement, shall apply. The proceedings shall be held in the County of Santa Clara, California, U.S.A. under the auspices of the AAA or the International Chamber of Commerce, whichever is applicable. As a minimum set of rules in the arbitration, the Parties agree as follows: A. The arbitration shall be held by single arbitrator mutually acceptable to both parties. If the parties cannot agree on a single arbitrator within thirty (30) days from the date written demand is made, each Party shall identify one independent individual who shall meet to appoint a single arbitrator. If an arbitrator still cannot be agreed upon within an additional thirty (30) days, one shall be appointed by the AAA or ICC as applicable. The arbitrator shall be knowledgeable regarding the internet hosting or data services industries. B. Prior to a final award, the parties shall equally bear the costs and fees of the arbitration and each party shall bear its own legal expenses. The Parties agree that a court reporter will record the arbitration proceedings and that the reporter's record will be the agreed transcript of the proceedings. Prior to a final award, the parties will share the expenses of this reporter. C. The arbitrator shall specify the basis for his/her decision, the basis for the damages award and a breakdown of the damages awarded, and the basis of any other remedy authorized under Section 12. The decision of the arbitrator shall be considered as a final and binding resolution of the disagreement, shall not be subject to appeal and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction in the United States in the State of California. Each Party agrees to submit to the jurisdiction of any such court for purposes of the enforcement of any such decision, award, order or judgment. D. Any arbitration proceeding hereunder shall be conducted on a confidential basis. E. The arbitrator shall apply the substantive laws of the State of Delaware in interpreting and resolving disputes. F. The parties shall agree upon what, if any, discovery shall be permitted. If the parties cannot agree on the form of discovery within fifteen (15) days after the appointment of the Arbitrator, then there shall be neither discovery nor the issuance of subpoenas. In no event, however, shall any such discovery take more than three months. G. The duty of the parties to arbitrate any dispute within the scope of this Section shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason. The parties specifically agree that any action must be brought, if at all, within two (2) years from the accrual of the cause of action. 23 of 25 <PAGE> 24 H. The discretion of the arbitrator to fashion remedies shall be limited as stated in this Section 13 and Section 12 hereunder, and shall exclude any right to award a remedy based on implied rights under the Agreement. 13.3 Other Claims. Any controversy or claim which is beyond the scope of this Section shall be submitted by any affected party to a court of competent jurisdiction located in Santa Clara County, California, U.S.A. and the parties agree to be bound by any judgment of such court. Otherwise, neither Party shall sue the other where the basis of the suit is within the scope of this Section except for enforcement of the arbitrator's decision in the event that the other party is not performing in accordance with the arbitrator's decision. 13.4 Governing Law. Any claim arising under or relating to this Agreement shall be governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Delaware and the federal courts located in Delaware, without regard to principles of conflict of laws. Each party hereby agrees to jurisdiction and venue in the courts of the State of California for all disputes and litigation arising under or relating to this Agreement. Furthermore, the parties agree that the terms of The U.N. Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods do not apply to this Agreement. 13.5 Attorneys' Fees. In the event of any dispute or arbitration hereunder, the prevailing party shall be entitle to recover its costs and disbursements incurred, together with reasonable attorneys' fees to be fixed by the arbitrator or court at trial or on appeal. 14. Miscellaneous. 14.1 Notice.
